Kakadu nomination

The Bushfire CRC and CSIRO supported Kakadu Wetland Burning Project was a finalist in the Environmental Research section of the prestigious 2011 Banksia Awards.

Unfortunately, it didn’t win the main prize at the awards ceremony last month, attended by researcher Dr Alan Anderson and one of the families involved with the project.

The Paradise Farm community of traditional owners has re-applied traditional fire management to the iconic wetlands of World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park, dramatically enhancing their natural and cultural values.
